Apart from suiting college students with hectic schedules, virtual internships can be ideal for nontraditional students such as Heidi Johnston, 33, a business and marketing major at Southern New Hampshire University, who also holds down a full-time job at AAA Northern New England.
For the past four months, Johnston has been doing market research and social media for Braathe Enterprises, a consulting firm that works with small and midsized businesses. She does the work late at night, when she gets home from school, or in the morning before work.
